    *jaw drops to floor* Wow. I didn’t read all of them, but just… wow. They’re so beautiful. So, so beautiful. I love them!! They’re like a testament to God. And yes, much enjoyment, and they really are very encouraging. I really love how you bring them all around to God in some way.

      This week’s is a long one. It took some time to get all my thoughts formulated to write this one; I actually asked my grandfather for some help. But that was- was- I don’t remember exactly! 🙂 Here it is anyway! Enjoy! 🙂

       

      Crying Out Your Glory

      From the cloud islands that float in an ocean blue sky-

      To the winds blowing o’er the fields of brightest green-

      From the trees, lifting up their hands to heaven high-

      To flowers that open their hearts to the King-

      All creation is crying out Your glory!

       

      From the waves crashing against the changeless rocky coast-

      To sunset hues bathing the sand of golden beach-

      From the stars, shining bright as a mighty twinklin’ host-

      To Northern lights, setting on fire the might time skies-

      All creation is crying out Your glory!

       

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      They declare Your glorious story!

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      The Creator most high reigns!

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      Praise our Lord, Savior and King

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      All creation cries out Your glory!

       

      From the falcons and eagles lifting their wings above-

      To songbirds twittering among the forest’s shady trees-

      From the white silken feathers of the gentlest dove-

      To painted peacocks and the gem-like humming birds-

      All creation is crying out Your glory!

       

      From the whale who cruises the mightiest deep-

      To little fish swimming in pools the tides forgot-

      From the corals crafting a fortress in ship-wrecked reef-

      To sea stars exemplifying the works You’ve wrought-

      All creation is crying out Your glory!

       

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      They declare Your glorious story!

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      The Creator most high reigns!

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      Praise our Lord, Savior and King

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      All creation cries out Your glory!

       

      From the thundering of a thousand horses’ hoof beats-

      To lonely cries howled from the heart of a wolf-

      From the mountain goats, of falling fearless in their feats-

      To graceful bounds of dappled leopard when he leaps

      All Creation is crying out your glory!

       

      And mankind, created as Your crowning masterpiece

      To fellowship with You as companion and friend.

      From the first day, though we marred the world You made,

      To eternity, You had a plan to redeem us all

      Then all creation shall again cry Your glory!

       

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      They declare Your glorious story!

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      The Creator most high reigns!

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      Praise our Lord, Savior and King

      Gloria! Gloria! Hallelujah!

      All creation cries out Your glory!

        @andrew @kari-karast Thank you! I think of it as a song, just without a music score to go with it, like a flower only half-bloomed.

        Your word I have hidden in my heart,
        That I might not sin against You.

        This one is a long one with long lines, but I couldn’t get the feel I wanted otherwise. If any of you has any critique one this one, PLEASE share it.

        It was inspired by a movie I’ve watched a lot recently. It’s call to all Christians. I hope it encourages you to be a brave soldier for Christ.

        The movie, ”The Defense of New Haven” one that I would highly recommend  to anyone looking for clean, family-friendly movies to watch. Check out the website here:  https://littlecrewstudios.com/

        The Defenders

        Messages are coming, warning of marauders in our midst

        Invaders seeking to steal, kill and destroy

        Their leader, a heartless devil, seeks to crush with his fist

        The life and truth that all men need to survive

        The call of duty sounds. Who will rise to defend

        Rout these spirit raiders, bringing their terror strikes to an end.

        The defenders, those who arose to defend

        The gospel of Light and rescue men

        Upon the Word they must stand. They must fight.

        What’s this course instated by those in who leadership stand?

        And who’s this mortal in chieftainship in our band?

        Knowledge-half is truth and the other is lumped with man’s lies

        And men that lead listening to the worldly wise

        We are drilled, distracted to harm our enemy has planned

        The Book our King left for us is ‘contraband’

        Who are we to question the Word our King’s own hand has penned

        This  is city His that we’re stationed to defend

        We must purge our passions, purpose to give all for this fight

        And choose this Book to be our weapon of light

        Testament of time on hand and the truth strapped at our side

        So we will stand- never surrender or hide

        Though foes be many and conflicts be intense

        Vigilant and sober, prayerfully we’ll rise to the defense

        The defenders, those who arise to defend

        The gospel of Light and rescue men

        Upon the Word they must stand. They must fight.

        Will His force arise to triumph if they live only for ease

        Or be reduced to a faithful few on their knees?

        Rebuild from ashes, return to the Book and give all for

        Our King, our comrades and souls caught in this war.

        If earthly leaders turn traitor, arise! Soldiers of the King

        And rebuke them in our King’s name, tho it sting

        He will come someday and the war at last shall be won

        The faithful warriors shall hear his ‘’Well done!”

        The defenders, those who arose to defend

        The gospel of Light and rescue men

        Upon the Word they must stand. They must fight.

         

        The defenders, those who arise to defend

        The gospel of Light and rescue men

        Upon the Word they must stand. They must fight.
